How Long Do Lip Fillers Last

As a leading Mayfair aesthetics clinic, lip fillers are one of our treatment specialities. And it’s easy to see why – this is a procedure that’s among the most popular in the UK, as well as on the global stage. Lip fillers are a lot more prevalent than you might think, not just among the celebrity set, but even friends and relatives. With people being more open and honest about their enhancements – including lip augmentation – we’re only seeing that popularity increase.

Today, our experts in Mayfair are sharing some answers to frequently asked questions about lip augmentation, including whether it’s painful, what the pros and cons are, and how long you can expect results to last. To find out all about this quick and easy treatment, read on.

What are lip fillers made of?

Lip fillers are made of hyaluronic acid. This is a substance that helps to plump, volumise, moisturise and sculpt. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring and easily processed by the body.

Do lip fillers hurt?

No, most of our clients don’t find the procedure painful. With lip augmentation, like any other injectable treatment, you may find the skin feels a little tender or looks slightly red afterwards, and swelling does sometimes occur. But in most cases, both the treatment itself and the post-treatment period are relatively comfortable.

How long do lip fillers last?

Lip injections typically last between 12-18 months, depending on the person. To maintain results, top-ups are advised, and we’ll recommend when these are needed based on your personal treatment plan.

Are fillers safe?

Absolutely. Lip injections are delivered by our talented and fully-trained experts in our Mayfair aesthetics clinic. Aftercare and downtime are minimal, and serious risks and side effects are rare. We will also never advise on a treatment we don’t feel is suitable for our clients – thanks to our consultation process.

What are the pros and cons of lip fillers?

Lip injections can help to emphasise and enhance your pout; plump and volumise thin lips; shape, define and correct asymmetry, and soften lines and wrinkles around the mouth. However, the results are not permanent, so you’ll need to repeat the treatment for lasting effects. We’ll recommend when this is needed.
